From its organic beginnings in 2013 as a group of trumpeters getting together at bandleader, composer and educator, Ashlin Parker’s New Orleans apartment to share practice techniques, the Trumpet Mafia has grown into an international collective of creative excellence. Their unexpected arrangements mix traditional jazz and hip-hop. Since 2016, the rotating assembly of horn players has performed energetic “takeovers” both in street pop-ups and at numerous festivals in New Orleans and abroad, including the New Orleans Jazz Festival and French Quarter Festival, garnering an OffBeat Magazine “Best Emerging Artist” Award in 2017.

Saturn Quartet is composed of young players and composers based in New Orleans who met during their time studying at the Florida State University Jazz Studies Program. Since the release of their Quartet’s debut album “Synchronicities” in Spring 2022 and their sophomore follow-up record, “Luz,” in 2023, they have played weekly on syndicated radio across the United States and in the United Kingdom. Tonight, they join Ashlin Parker and the Trumpet Mafia
